Maybe if Netanyahu became a talk show host . . .

Posted in Politics on September 25, 2012 by Annette Budd

President Obama’s refusal to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu, while making time for Letterman and The View, is prodding the Mideast closer and closer to the brink of war.  Those who have vowed to annihilate Israel are waiting for just the right moment to strike. That that moment is close at hand. Obama is sending the clear message that we will NOT stand with Israel if they are attacked. We don’t even have time to meet with them, let alone support them in a war. That’s how Israel’s enemies view this.

Iran test fired four missiles today in the Strait of Hormuz. If they close that strait, it will completely disrupt the trade of oil around the world. If you think the economy is bad now (and it is) wait until our supply of oil is cut off.  But Obama continues to be nearsighted, not being able to see anything past November 6th.

The relationship  between our country and most of the Arabic world at this moment is extraordinarily tenuous.  They are killing our ambassadors and embassies all over the world are on high alert.  And Obama’s excuse for not meeting with other world leaders today when he spoke at the UN was that if he met with one he would have to meet with ten.  We are at a time when we should be meeting with every world leader possible to avert war.

Maybe if those world leaders would host a talk show, Obama would make time to meet with them.
